I hope this is the right forum for my question. My computer has been running slowly since around the time I installed a new printer/fax/copier/scanner. If I do a system restore that is prior to the date of installation, will it take out the printer installation? Does system restore undo any installation? Thanks!

Partially only. Whatever system files and registry entries were created, those will be gone.
The proper way would be to uninstall printer and printer software first.
Then, you can use system restore, if you wish.
